NCAN #Thankful4Pell Campaign

November 14, 2018 - November 16, 2018

The federal Pell Grant program plays a crucial role in helping students from low-income backgrounds access higher education. NCAN, its members, and others are joining together this Thanksgiving season to express our thanks for this need-based grant program.

Starting Nov. 14, you can visit our advocacy action center to seamlessly share your Pell Grant story and thanks with members of Congress via email or Twitter. We’ve provided sample text and tweets for both students and professionals, but we suggest personalizing these communications as much as possible.

When the campaign launches, in addition to reaching out to lawmakers directly, you can take the following actions on social media to help spread the word about #Thankful4Pell. The more people who participate in the campaign, the stronger and louder our collective voice will be!

  • Share why you appreciate Pell Grants using the #Thankful4Pell hashtag on Twitter or Facebook.
  • Download a social media filter to overlay the #Thankful4Pell logo onto your profile pictures.
  • Join us (@collegeaccess) on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 2 p.m. EDT for a Twitter chat about the importance of Pell Grants.
